NAME

       XSetWMIconName, XGetWMIconName, XSetIconName, XGetIconName - set or read a window's
       WM_ICON_NAME property

SYNTAX

       void XSetWMIconName(Display *display, Window w, XTextProperty *text_prop);

       Status XGetWMIconName(Display *display, Window w, XTextProperty *text_prop_return);

       int XSetIconName(Display *display, Window w, char *icon_name);

       Status XGetIconName(Display *display, Window w, char **icon_name_return);

ARGUMENTS

       display   Specifies the connection to the X server.

       icon_name Specifies the icon name, which should be a null-terminated string.

       icon_name_return
                 Returns the window's icon name, which is a null-terminated string.

       text_prop Specifies the XTextProperty structure to be used.

       text_prop_return
                 Returns the XTextProperty structure.

       w         Specifies the window.

DESCRIPTION

       The XSetWMIconName convenience function calls XSetTextProperty to set the WM_ICON_NAME
       property.

       The XGetWMIconName convenience function calls XGetTextProperty to obtain the WM_ICON_NAME
       property.  It returns a nonzero status on success; otherwise, it returns a zero status.

       The XSetIconName function sets the name to be displayed in a window's icon.

       XSetIconName can generate BadAlloc and BadWindow errors.

       The XGetIconName function returns the name to be displayed in the specified window's icon.
       If it succeeds, it returns a nonzero status; otherwise, if no icon name has been set for
       the window, it returns zero.  If you never assigned a name to the window, XGetIconName
       sets icon_name_return to NULL.  If the data returned by the server is in the Latin
       Portable Character Encoding, then the returned string is in the Host Portable Character
       Encoding.  Otherwise, the result is implementation-dependent.  When finished with it, a
       client must free the icon name string using XFree.

       XGetIconName can generate a BadWindow error.

PROPERTIES

       WM_ICON_NAME
                 The name to be used in an icon.

DIAGNOSTICS

       BadAlloc  The server failed to allocate the requested resource or server memory.

       BadWindow A value for a Window argument does not name a defined Window.
